Michal Neuvirth isn't having a particularly strong season, but this should give the Capitals some stability behind Braden Holtby, who figures to shoulder the workload in the playoffs. Neuvirth and Holtby are both signed through the 2014-15 season. (Updated 4/27/13).

Sergei Gonchar scored 47 seconds into overtime, Erik Karlsson set up Ottawa's first goal in his sooner-than-anticipated return from a torn Achilles tendon, and the Senators clinched a playoff berth by beating the Washington Capitals 2-1 Thursday night.
Michal Neuvirth was the heir apparent at the midpoint last year but injuries and inconsistent results led to Braden Holtby getting more chances for the Caps as the season ended. Neuvirth did play in 38 games however, notching a .903 save percentage and was 13-13 in 2011-2012 and looks to be giving way to Holtby next season. A new coach is in Washington however, and Neuvirth has the potential at 24-years old to elevate his game. Managers will want to keep an eye on the goalie situation in Washington as draft day approaches, but Holtby appears to have the inside track over Neuvirth. (Updated 8/14/12)
